Strange Food Combinations

Now I was a kid who always had a good appetite. Just give me food and I’ll eat it. However, I had very strange combinations which I loved. An absolute favorite was a small bowl of applesauce and a glass of buttermilk to wash it down. Kid you not. Then there was the combination of cake such as strawberry shortcake and buttermilk.

I just loved freshly baked bread. There was a local bakery from which my dad always bought freshly baked bread. He loved the long French bread loaves best. When we came out of the bakery he gave me the long bag with the bread to hold. Actually the bread was almost my size and I held that delicious smelling bread beneath my nose. Naturally, I started gnawing at it.

We would get home and dad was surprised to find almost half of the loaf gone. At home, I loved taking pieces of the freshly baked bread and dunking them in milk so they would get all soggy and then I would eat them. I’m telling you even this sounds odd to me but go figure what a little kid has in her mind.

You should have seen me at lunchtime. My favorite lunch was Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup while looking through a children’s book of Cinderella and listening to my favorite children’s songs on a small mono record player. Those were the fun old days.

I attached a photo of little me riding a donkey.
